On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Senior Editor Christopher Bedford and Assistant Editor Kylee Zempel join Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to break down President Joe Biden’s “bipartisan” infrastructure bill and the Democrats’ quest to push a progressive version of the legislation through reconciliation.

“Any Republican who is stupid enough to agree to this, which there are, is agreeing already to fail,” Bedford said. “…[Democrats] offer them this horrific deal. Republicans, if they have any brains or fortitude, which they might not, will completely balk at it and the bipartisan deal will completely fall apart.”

The dialogue surrounding the infrastructure legislation has tainted it and its chances of getting through Congress, Zempel said.

“This is another example of how politics is so downstream from culture because we couldn’t be having a conversation about what does infrastructure mean if we hadn’t veered so far just from language being accurate,” Zempel said.

“You don’t start with a misnamed infrastructure bill. You start with the AP adopting ‘them’ and ‘their’ as like acceptable pronoun use.  This is a result of a decade of words being completely misdefined. This is a political result of a cultural phenomenon, not the other way around,” she said.
